If you want a sleek-looking amp with boatloads of tone, then the Blackstar HT Stage 60 guitar combo amplifier is your final stop for rock. This monster of an amp features one clean and two overdrive channels, bass and treble EQ controls for your clean channel, three-band EQ controls for your overdrive channels, two ECC83, one ECC82, and two EL34 tubes, two 12" Celestion speakers, voice switching for all three channels, master presence, resonance, and volume controls, onboard digital reverb with a bright/dark switch, and Blackstar's patent-applied-for Infinite Shape Feature (ISF).
Three Channels of All-Tube Tone
The Blackstar HT Stage 60 boasts three separate channels with lots of room for crafting your particular tone. Your clean channel projects a well-articulated sound full of body and presence. Your OD1 brings in a serious load of crunch to your signal, and your OD2 pushes things even further for those heart-stopping wails and head-spinning licks. The included four-way footswitch allows for easy and seamless switching between any of your channels. With the HT Stage 60, you won't run out of amp any time soon!
Independent EQ for Clean and OD Channels
This Blackstar combo amp gives you a nice set of independent EQ controls on each channel. Your clean channel features treble and bass EQ controls, and your OD1 and OD2 channels give your bass, middle, and treble control knobs to hone in on your preferred sound. Your clean channel also offers a voice switch that allows you to change between British Class A and a US dynamic clean setting.
Infinite Shape Feature (ISF)
Both your OD1 and OD2 channels boast Blackstar's awesome Infinite Shape Feature (ISF). This sweet control allows you to dial in the appropriate blend between a British tone and a more American contour. Set your dial right in the middle for a perfect 50/50 blend of each tone. Play around and see which sound makes the most sense for your specific style.
Onboard Reverb and Effects Loop Level Control
To add some final sonic flair to your sound, the Blackstar HT Stage 60 offers onboard digital reverb. Hit the reverb's bright/dark switch to get whatever color you're aiming for. Your external effects loop also has a level control, so you can set just the right balance in one simple turn.
